[arch-general] [pacman] unknown-horizons / dependencies

as far as I understood, there's a conflict between "unknown-horizons" 
and current version of fife. However, the game refuses to start, so I 
want to re-install it, respectively replace it by the git version.

Using "pacman -Rssd" (also using only one "s"), optional dependencies of 
other packages are removed, too (e.g. "boost" for "ogre"), but without 
any "s", no dependencies are removed.

1. As I don't remember, which package has installed "ogre" probably as a 
dependency, I'd like to know that. Using "-Qo" it seems only to be 
possible to get the owners of files - how can I view the "parent" or 
"owner package" of a package?

2. How can I exclude optional dependencies from removal?

Kind regards
